The program is based on the approach that I have explored in my book, and we will be using the book as our text.
This program is comprised of three levels. Completion of the Level One course will allow the participants to volunteer as doulas for Montreal Birth Companions volunteer doula organization.
Level Two is a continuation and an exploration of themes introduced in Level One. This level will provide doulas with the necessary skills to run a private doula practice.
Level Three courses are specialized, and they take place in all sorts of interesting places.
We will be going to Cuba together next spring, and this summer we will be exploring storytelling and healing with Lewis Mehl-Madrona, in Italy.
To be accepted into Level Three you need to have attended births as a doula or lay midwife, and you need a strong foundation in self-directed learning.
If you are interested in accompanying me on any or all of these journeys, please let me know. Our courses are filling up fast!
